2017 is just around the corner and lots of people are hoping to turn over a new leaf. I’m no exception! I want this to be my best year ever. Here are the main goals on my new year resolution list.
Resolution 1: Eat Healthier
I’ve gotten in such a habit of grabbing fast food on my way somewhere because it’s-duh-fast! I know it’s much better for me to prep some meals and snacks in advance so I’m always prepared. This year I want to cut back on eating out and pay more attention to what I put in my body.
Resolution 2: Exercise More
Being healthy isn’t all about food, I’ve gotta build some muscle, too! There was a time when I ran every day, my long runs were as much as 8 miles. Once the routine was broken, though, it became so much easier to just skip the running and working out altogether. I want to get back out there again!
Resolution 3: Get Out of Debt
I was lucky to avoid having a large amount of student loans to pay, but not smart about avoiding credit card debt! Having a positive cash flow and getting all debts paid provides a huge peace of mind and allows you to have more money to spend on other things, or just save! That’s a huge goal for me this year.
Resolution 4: De-clutter
I live in the city, where people typically pay more money for smaller spaces, so I have a lot of stuff to fit in a smaller living space! I’m a nostalgic pack rat and I try to find a need for every empty jar or container. It all just needs to go! I’d love a clean space where I know where everything is.
Resolution 5: Establish a Routine
I don’t have a set work schedule. This is awesome because I don’t have to stress about being late or getting off work when I need it. The downfall is I only answer to myself, which can be dangerous. It’s easy to blow things off when there’s no immediacy to actually do anything. Life is much more productive when you have a plan for it. Of course, variances from routine provide nice breaks and new inspirations, but you have to establish the habit before you can break it!
